A Once Immortal Flame

Standing in a row above funeral plains

robed in white and scarlet

and mourning all that vanished at the dawn

shadows made into flesh and blood

lurk among the barrens

forbidden places where no road can reach

where the land is sick and dying

and a wraith king reigns over fading memory

There you may find an end to legend

entombed with the cries of a sacrificial lamb

On solstice night atop the hillside

stand with eyes to the west

and watch the death of the sun

Below that once immortal flame

you will see the last march of kings

crawling, weak with hunger, to touch the face of eternity

Are there any unproven conspiracy theories you believe to be true?
